Catwalk & Design is modelling competition and fashion design competition. It is a non-traditional fashion show as it includes entertainment, dance competition, prizes and with sumptuous dinner shared by all. Models are either novice or experienced but are encouraged in a fun and challenging competition with audience participation.
Kid models (not in competition) will showcase either a particular country costume or a favourite character costume. There are teen models, and mainstream models aged 18+ and mature-aged models. The fashion designer competition will also be highlighted. Prizes are at stake and random audience prizes are also in store.
Previous Catwalk & Design events were held in various Sydney locations (since 2004) in venues like Sydney Centrepoint, Wesley Convention Centre, Campbelltown Stadium, Liverpool Catholic Club; and in Canberra region at Hellenic Woden and Canberra Labor Club.
C&D highlights the community movement Thanksgiving International's goal of promoting awareness that it is great to be grateful.
